Researchers at Texas A&M University have successfully cloned a horse by using adult horse skin cells biopsied from a genetic donor to clone the foal. The foal was born on March 13 and has been named Paris Texas.
The university partnered with a French company that is dedicated to preserving the genes of exceptional horses.
Since December 2002 the school has already cloned six animal species: a cat, pigs, a Boer goat, deer, a disease-resistant Anus bull and the first Brahma bull.
